Tyler from WeightTraining.com contacted me not too long ago requesting some information on my choice of protein powders. We exchanged emails over a couple of days talking about powders vs. whole foods and all kinds of fun stuff. He offered to send me a WeightTraining.com t-shirt in return and I think it’s pretty cool 😉
Shortly after, he tweeted me a link to the “1 Month No Sweets Challenge” on the WeightTraining.com website. I looked into it and as terrifying as it sounds, I convinced myself to sign up…
You can read all about the details here. Basically it is a month with no sweets and if you “cheat”, you must start the 30 days over again. If you complete the challenge, you are just in time for Easter, and I grant you permission to eat a Costco-sized bag of Mini Eggs. I told Tyler that was my plan and he was not impressed.
On a more serious note, you will most likely feel better about yourself, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you were able to complete a goal, and it will prove that sweets are not really necessary in your diet.
I already talked about March being “no junk month” for me but I signed up as a way to hold myself accountable. Now I am challenging YOU to sign up too (it only takes about 30 seconds). We can give each other high fives and get a little discussion going (aka talk about the first candy we’re going to rip open when the challenge is over).
Probably not, but I’m doing it anyway! Let me know if you are in!
PS – it already says I “conquered” the challenge because I clicked “completed” by accident… Don’t mind that! I started yesterday, March 7th, and will go until April 7th (I hope)!
